    Carbon Free Zone?

    I've been lurking about for a few months and don't recall reading anything about any Carbon Fiber Single Speeds.

    It seems as if Ti is a used by custom builders there would be some Carbon frames as well.

    Any particular reason?

    Well, you've got this:
    http://www.singlespeedoutlaw.com/iss...nterfold.shtml

    But besides that one, I've read making carbon presses or molds are extremely expensive. So much so, that even Lance Armstrong doesn't get a "special" custom-sized Trek OCLV. (Also, I guess if the stock sizes fit him fine, there isn't a need for them to make him one.)

    Maybe SS-do-gooder Travis Brown can convince them to make one for us?

    EDIT: I can't find anywhere online that backs up about Armstrong not getting a special OCLV frame, but I know I read it before! Anyways, I found this, which is counter to what I believe I read:
    http://www.cncmagazine.com/v6i23/v6i23h-TREK.htm

    Maybe after winning a few of them Tours, they figgered he's worthy of a "custom" frame

    Aegis composite bicycles makes a CF SS. Its an option for horiaontal drops on any of their models...
    100% carbon fiber made....in Maine, USA
    but horizontals are a lame option for a SS bike
    I visited their factory in Maine last summer... very cool operation they have going...

    any carbon frame is SS as long as it uses ENO.

    No way. HBFKs are bound to be McBurger eaters. They don't deserve SSing. Especially on a carbon rig, they'd brake it and get carbon particles up their nards. Put ENO on this rig, and it will be so so sweet: http://www.trekbikes.com/bikes/2004/...in/elite98.jsp

    I am pretty sure....

    that is a Lahar "softtail" from Frodo's home, New Zealand. Hot dang it looks nice! Almost as nice as a pink 1x1!! (If only they made them in mustard-fade-to-purple!)
    Ride.
